Hey, I'm Roben!

I’m a boudoir, headshot and portrait photographer, a romance novelist and an award-winning writer located in Central New Jersey. I've been in love with photography for more than 30 years. My areas of focus stem from being an awkward teen to maturing into a woman who found her groove, working in the corporate sector and my mom.


As a teen, my self-confidence (like many of us) was sorely lacking! However, when I started to maneuver through this thing called life, I learned to own my sensuality and to love me regardless of who else did. That's why boudoir speaks to me. We all need to be reminded that we are desirable, sexy and worthy of the best things in life. I want to help empower women by creating a unique boudoir experience that promotes body positivity and matches their personalities, passions and needs.


My mother was the keeper of all family photo albums (she protected them like gold!) and one of my favorite photographs featured five generations of women in my family--my great-grandmother, grandmother, mother, me and my daughter. Three generations are no longer here physically, but they're always with me thanks to this picture and it's a memory I will always cherish.


And as you probably know, presentation and first impressions are everything. So, I focus on delivering quality images that capture people in their element and help them grow in their respective careers and artistic endeavors.


Other things I LOVE:

  • Playing video games
  • Watching my favorite movies for the 100th time
  • Going to jazz clubs & concerts
  • Giving "high fives" to people who crush it!
  • My 3 spoiled dogs
  • Singing old-school jams and being silly with my grand-kids
  • The smell of a new computer (yeah, I'm a techy!)
  • Planning my next adventure/trip
  • The color black (it's classic!)
  • Mango Smoothies
  • Nutella (OMG!)


I've been so lucky to have met some of the coolest and most amazing people when I photograph them -- especially during our boudoir sessions. Many women walk through the door apprehensive and unsure if they'll look good during the session. But when they start to feel the vibe and see me working to bring out the best in them, they begin to relax and have fun. They begin to see what I see: their beauty, vibrancy and uniqueness.


Soon, we’re laughing and screaming over pictures that make them wonder what took them so long to do this! These incredible women walk out of their session bad ass - sporting confidence, happiness and sensual awareness, and they've earned it. I’m proud to know I had a small part in making that happen and even better, I made a new friend. It is the BEST feeling!

When you book with Glimpse PhotographyNJ, we may meet as acquaintances, but we will say “see you later” as if we’ve known each other for years!
